If you have an internet connection, chances are you have IMDb on standby. How else are we expected to find out how we know that one girl from that one show?

Each year, IMDb takes all the search data you’ve thrown their way through many a binge-fest and compiles it into a concrete list of their top … well, everything. Perhaps most interesting, however, is their ranking of the year’s top stars.

The site sorts their hottest names into two different categories: Top Stars (those who’ve ranked highest on the site’s STARmeter throughout the year) and Top Breakout Stars (stars who’ve ranked highest throughout the year and have broken the IMDb’s Top 100 for the first time in their careers).

You’ll find that many of the names on both lists fall into the “she/he looks so familiar …” subcategory, but they won’t for long. As the results of years past have predicted, the no. 1 breakout star on the list is typically on their way to Hollywood superstardom. Millie Bobby Brown and Margot Robbie have both previously held the title (in 2016 and 2014, respectively).

This year, The End of the F***ing World’s Jessica Barden tops the Breakout list (pictured above), paralleled by Jumanji’s Karen Gillan on the Top Stars list. Other notable actors to crop up on the rankings include A Quiet Place’s John Krasinski, Black Panther’s Michael B. Jordan, Chilling Adventures of Sabrina’s Kiernan Shipka, and To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before’s Noah Centineo. Read on below for IMDb’s full ranking.
